This is my way to play Sona, Maven of the Stings. Let's start off with the basics. This is a Support/Nuker build. For everyone who's now yelling "NOOOB SONA CAN ONLY BE SUPPORT!", I disagree. Anyone remember a different support/nuker who goes by the name of Janna? ^.^ This build still does focus on the support, but Hymn of valor and Aria of perseverance become awesome if you stack a bit of AP.

1. Skills

To start off, take Hymn of valor. At levels 2 and 3, take a rank of AoP (Aria of perseverance) and song of celerity. After that, alternate hymn of valor and AoP, taking your ultimate whenever possible.

2. Masteries

Fairly simple 9/0/21 build reaching magic pen. in offensive, and taking the useful mana, mana regen, flash, and clarity upgrades. After all, what is a good support without being a fountain of mana and heals. Don't take the neutral monster buff upgrade.

3. Items

Start off with a Sapphire crystal and both a pot of HP and MP. Return to base once you have 595 gold. At 595 gold, grab tear of the goddess. After that, grab Archangel's Staff. It gives you all the mana regen your going to need. After Archangel's, grab Mejai's Soulstealer, followed by either Merc's Treads or Sorcerers shoes, depending on the other team's CC. If you can, grab the sorcs. End it with a Rod of Ages, Voidstaff, and Zhonyas Ring. *Note* There's a good chance this build will never be finished, unless the game goes to like 1h and a half.

4. Playstyle

Sona isn't that hard a champion to play, as long as you know what your doing. During a team fight, spam hymn of valor for some good dps. If your team is getting owned, pop out AoP for some heals. If they (or you) start to run, use Song of Celerity to catch up. The biggest thing to stress is that Sona is probably the squishiest champion ever thought up. She will never - EVER - be able to take alot of hits. If ganked, instantly run if no allies are near. Don't be afraid to use your ultimate to slow them down.

That's it, and just remember, your going to be the champion everyone wants to lane with. Why? You have your own theme song that follows you around!
